Bought these cross bars to go on a OEM honda odyssey roof rack. Very pleased with the quality of these bars...heavy, sturdy and easy to put on. Have not travelled with them yet but have no fear of them coming loose. Excellent deal compared to yakima/thule/other after-market bars.
Rather than going with the $300 OEM crossbars for my '16 Golf Sportwagen, I decided to give these a try. They're a snap to take on and off in about 60 seconds, which is perfect because I only need them a few times a year and don't wan't them to stay on the car. Held two kayaks with no problem.
The quality is good and the bars feel solid and strong. I put a large, wide hard shell aluminum car top carrier loaded with luggage on these cross bars and did 50 hours of driving over spring break. They fit our Toyota Sienna perfectly (side rails were already installed) and stayed snugly attached with no need to re-tighten. There was no whistling or wind noise and despite driving through some high winds and heavy rain, they did not slip, bend, or loosen whatsoever.
The best feature for me was how easy they were to put on and take off. Just twist the plastic wingnuts by hand, no tools or great strength required. I debated whether I needed cross bars that lock, but with the carrier on top there was little point locking the bars on as well. And because they are so fast and simple to put on and remove, I will just keep the bars off when we are not using the car top carrier. So I am glad I did not get locking bars with more pieces that could break or rust or whistle. And the price for these was excellent--a third the price of comparable name-brand items. If you have an SUV, minivan, or large sedan you should not need bars any wider than these at 49.75". The grips will adjust as narrow as you would ever need, but for very small vehicles the bars would probably stick out too far over the doors to be safe.
I called customer service before ordering because of my limited window before leaving on this vacation. They were super friendly and helpful to work with and the item arrived right when they said it would!
These were very simple to put on top of our car, and very easy to take off as well. No extra hardware needed. Also holds up great for holding 2 kayaks on top of our small SUV. I would definitely recommend.
These install very easy within 2 minutes and are very sturdy after you tighten them down I will definitely buy another pair for another vehicle
Easiest bars to install and remove on my Subaru. Definitely recommend these, good buy.
Got the bars for my Chevy Captiva, easiest installation and no need for tools was GREAT!!! Got them to carry my skis around.
I will definitely recommend these to anyone needing to add them to their vehicle.
This Roof Rack fits my VW Touareg and allows me to only make one trip with equipment inside and two ladders on the roof. This is easy to install and can be removed when not in use. Great product and very useful.
got rack today for rav4. easy on and off. will work great for canoe and yak.. will be ordering more items.great site.thank you
i ordered the bars to use on my 2013 Equinox and 2015 CX5. They easily on both. I ordered them over Labor Day weekend and received them less than a week.
Just arrived and installed. Fits on my 15 Kia Sorento like a glove. Looking forward to getting a lot of use from same.
Bought same for roof top carried and kayak.
This is easy to instal, good quality and fitting with the Mini!
At this price versus other solutions above $ 200 for Mini Clubman, its the best alternative ever!!
Highly recommended for all Mini Cooper Clubman owners.
Thank you Discount Ramps!!!
This rack works well with my 2010 Nissan Rogue. Good price compared to custom racks, and it held my canoe just fine.
My main complaint is that the description of those cars that this rack fits was unclear, but other reviews said that it fits the Rogue. Good purchase for the money.
it was easy to install and worked great! our daughter and family came to Florida and loaded their SUV to go home and the roof rack fit the bill exactly.
fit well and are sturdy for my 91/2' kayak. very easy to install, took 10 minutes. noticed some noise while on freeway but I guess that is to be expected. very pleased
Very, Easy to install and position on the top of our 2007 Jeep Liberty. Simple to set at the right side, one thing you could do to help is have a marker on each side so you know how much you have to spread out. Other than that great item.
Just got my new roof rack and we installed it in 5 minutes. Sturdy as a rock. Added pads for my windsurf board and good to go!
i have a 2014 RAV4 and I thought the running bars for it would be a little too thick for the cross bar clamp. It isn't. it opened wide, really wide. Managed to screw it in, I always check to make sure it's tight at every stop. it is. Drove 12 hours, no problem. Really good buy for the price.
Totally worth it. I like to go a bit overboard so, next long drive, I'm putting in a strap.
I liked the product description and the price for the item I was interested in.. I ordered the product and when it arrived I installed them right away. I am impressed with the quality of the item and the ease of installation. They blend in the my roof rack. It was a great purchase, great price and outstanding delivery. I look forward to many years of use.
I recently decided to get into being a more out active and outdoors person (not that I wasn't before) and decided I wanted to get a kayak. Spent a lot of time reviewing many racks like this one and either they seemed too cheaply made or way out of my budget with buying a new kayak. I decided to go with this one as someone else on Amazon had purchased it for their 2004 Jeep Liberty. Knowing it would fit my racks as I also drive a Jeep Liberty ('05) I knew it would be a great purchase.
Arrived Earlier than quoted!! Almost by a week!!
When I had received it I knew it was great quality as this thing is heavy but solid. I had to try it out and put it on right away. Looks great, works great for transporting the kayak's to and from the river.
Best purchase for this price range hands down. Thank you very much for the great racks! Will definitely be going to your site when it's time to upgrade!
Great product. Well made, designed and arrived on my doorstep 1 day early! Fits my old Yakima Cartop carrier just great!
This unit is heavier than I expected and very easy to install. I have used it haul lumber and my canoe on top of a Pontiac Vibe. After using, it takes just a few minutes to take it off the vehicle. I am going to dab a bit of heavy oil on the bolts. It should last a long time.
I have two GM vehicles with side rails but no cross bars. Found these bars by searching specific vehicle make and year. Thought I would give them a try. Arrived yesterday. Good sturdy packaging. Simple instructions that I looked after I was done installing the crossbars on a 2012 Acadia. Excellent fit and very sturdy. I'll come back to Discount Ramps when the need arrives.
Fit well,look solid and the price is very reasonable. I will put them to a number of tests and chime in later.
Bought this for my 2015 Nissan Rogue SV - fits perfectly. Easy on and off, solid, sturdy. I only occasionally use the roof for transport and wanted something that would be quick and easy to use but able to do the job. The product was shipped promptly, arrived on time, in good shape. Instructions are clear and simple, though the product doesn't really need much in the way of instruction.
I have a 2004 dodge durango - the roof rack fit with some minor adjustment. At first it was not sitting flush on my side railings since the clamp was hitting the roof, since it was maybe 1/16 -1/8 of an inch additional clearance that was needed I just slid of the very bottom of the protective rubber coating of the clamp - no nothing touched my roof an the bars sit flush. Seem to be very secure and were still tight after a 5 hour trip in the rain carrying max load.
Bought this for our 2010 Honda Odyssey to hold a Thule SUP Taxi system. Shipment was quick, installation was easy, quality of the rails is high, and the instructions were well written. The only area for improvement would be in design, to address noise abatement through streamlining the knobs on the tightening screws. We are very happy with our purchase and recommend these to other users.
I like the low profile design. I like the price as compared to other units. The simple design and ease of installation makes this a referable unit. One thing I wish was a way to secure this unit like a lock to keep theft from becoming a concern. I needed a way to transport my 28ft. ladder without having to use my big van.
I bought these rack to fit atop my 2009 Ford Escape so I could haul larger items safely and securely. I was impressed how easily the go on and come off. But once on, they are sturdy! This was important because I will only use them use them once in a while and don't want them on my vehicle all of the time.
I just got these for my 2005 Ford Focus station wagon. The were so easy to install, fits perfect and really seems like a quality item. Not cheaply made.
Brought roof cross bar for my jeep Liberty (2007) love them looks good and so easy too install Love them just great.
Seems to be solid and compatible to the Thule system. I plan to use this bar as the winter setup while the OEM bar will be for summer bikes and kayak.
These just came in the mail, they fit great on my outback! I installed them in literally 4 minutes and they feel solid and sturdy, I recommend this rack!
Obviously, these are not like a factory installed product. HOWEVER, for the price of these compared to the price of a factory job or some Thule racks, these are phenomenal. We use ours to carry an aluminum canoe. They install easily and stay put. Unlike some products from other manufacturers. They also come off your vehicle easily and quickly. We only put ours on when we need to haul the canoe. That helps save a little gas. These are well worth the investment. The only reason I gave them a 4 star and not a 5 is that they aren't the prettiest things. As far as functionality, they are perfect. Worth a try.
